The 21st Rainforest World Music Festival recorded an attendance of 21,668, surpassing the set target attendance of 20,000.
Saturday was a booming success, reaching approximately 9,000 festival-goers.
This three-day Festival attracted travellers from all walks of life and countries of origin, with activities like concerts and mini sessions, parades and surprise performances, wellness activities and lifestyle workshops, in-depth traditional instrument tutorials, cultural snippets and film screenings as well as children’s sessions, all surrounded by the cultural houses, food and crafts of the Sarawak people.
Another attraction factor was the expansion of the Festival grounds to include Damai Central, where two additional stage areas were situated, for even more activities and performances.
For 2019, the festival will be held from July 12 to 14 at the Sarawak Cultural Village.
